M Bakery & Café near the corner of 32nd Street and Fifth Avenue is one of the more refreshing places in the midtown area of Manhattan. The daily corporate crowds working in this part of the city have “chainy” places like Pax and Europa café and they lack access to coffee shops that feel like a room of one’s own. M Bakery & Café is a great place for a morning visit with a newspaper or a post lunch pick me up. They serve muffins, croissants, scones, cupcakes, cookies, tarts, macaroons and offer treats to take home like pancake and waffle mix, chocolate hazel nut sauce, keylime spread and more.
Cafe M Bakery & Cafe is located at 315 5th Avenue but it is really in between Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue near the 32nd Street corner.
